I mentioned that I found this new blog a few posts back, and so far, it has been a huge hit. Both recipes that I've tried have gotten five stars, so I'm going to keep trying out their dishes and I'm thrilled to have found a new source. Plus, they have cats and love them, so I'm extra fond of them :).
But, so yeah this fried rice. It's unbelievable. Bf and I agree, it's better than any fried rice we've ever ordered from a restaurant. Something about the (turkey) bacon and relatively fresh veggies is so delicious that we couldn't get enough. In fact, I made it last night and I'm pretty sure I'm making it again tomorrow because it's that good. Go ahead and judge me, I would too. My only complaint is that the recipe doesn't make a whole lot. The original link says four servings, but it's more like 2 large servings (assuming it's your entire dish, and why shouldn't it be? It has veggies, meat, carbs, everything you need!). So next time (aka tomorrow night), I'm doubling it so we have leftovers.
